Gibecière #8 (Summer 2009) $40.00 $30.00
Author(s): Minch, Stephen
Media: Periodicals
Format: Paperback
Publication Summary: 2009, 228 pages

Similar to the Summer 2007 issue which reprinted Horatio Galasso’s Giochi di carte belissimi (Most beautiful card games), this issue features a new and complete translation of Engaños a ojos vistas (Deceptions in Plain Sight) by Pablo Minguet è Yrol. Published in 1733, Minguet was Spain’s first book devoted to the teaching of conjuring secrets. This is the first time his examplary early text has been translated into English.

In addition to the translation, there are also introductory and supplementary articles by Stephen Minch, Juan Tamariz, and Enrique Jimènez-Martinez, including a checklist of editions by Sr. Jimènez-Martinez and William Kalush.

Original copies of Minguet are rather rare so it is a real treat to offer this translation which, combined with the supplementary materials, provides a unique opportunity to learn a great deal about a fascinating and previously inaccessible work.
